Childproof America - Safeguarding Families Against Sex Trafficking
!Urgent Warning to Parents

Childproof America is receiving daily calls from parents with children being pursued online through apps like Instagram and Snapchat. The online “friend” claims to be a peer from another state or country. The conversations start off slowly, building trust so the “target” becomes vulnerable and emotionally attached to the “peer”. Parents, these predators are experts at their craft and can get your child to do things you have warned them about for years.

The two goals these predators are working to achieve are:
1. Getting your child to trust them enough to send them an inappropriate image of themselves. Once they have this, they can sell it on the black market or try to extort money from your child. They will threaten to make the image public if demands are not met. This is called Sextortion and is a MAJOR problem according to ICAC, Internet Crimes Against Children.
2. They will ask your child to sneak out of the house to meet them to do XYZ.

So learn how to protect your children and the signs to look out for...
In this FREE EVENT we will share invaluable insight on social media safety & social media addiction and how these two issues go hand-in-hand.

 Kelly Litvak
Founder/Executive Director
Childproof America


Kelly's personal mission statement "is to empower youth with the life skills needed to break the generational cycle of self-destruction". This passion, combined with the knowledge of a human trafficking epidemic sweeping silently and strategically across our "safe" communities has ignited a fierce call to action to force change from suburbia to Capitol Hill.

In 2007 Kelly authored the popular Christian-based book, Tools 4 Teens. The following year she developed an 8-week Tools 4 Teens curriculum which successfully launched through HISD, serving disadvantaged youth. Over the following several years the program focused exclusively on male juvenile offenders within Harris County Juvenile Probation, resulting in a sharp decrease in recidivism among program graduates. The Tools 4 Teens Re-Entry Program followed in 2013 which provided re-entry support to youth, including mentoring, academic accountability and social enrichment.

Kelly received her Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Communications, with a concentration in Psychology, from Ohio University in 1988. A college internship serving victims of domestic violence first sparked her interest in an at-risk population. Her deep compassion for hurting and vulnerable youth are the driving forces behind her call to serve as a non-profit leader.

In 2017 and 2018, Katy Magazine honored Kelly as Top 100 Women of Katy. In December 2017, Katy Magazine named Kelly Top 10 Outstanding Katy People of the Year.

Kelly and her college sweetheart, Alan have called Katy home for 20 years. They have two children, ages 17 and 19.

Beau Abdulla, B. Ed, M.A.
Executive Director, Love People Not Pixels

  
Beau is a former middle school teacher who founded Love People Not Pixels (LPNP) in 2016.  He has been married to his wife Staci for 17 years and they have a son and daughter who are twins. 
 
Beau has been prepared to lead LPNP through many years of stretching, shaping, molding, breaking, guiding, healing and loving.   For over 3 decades he struggled with sexual compulsion / integrity issues.  As he found freedom from his chains in 2014, the vision for LPNP was seeded in Beau. 
Sexual compulsion and addiction is fueled by shame and silence.  So many people, young and old, have been overtaken by pornography and hyper-sexualization but don’t know where to start addressing it.  Beau formed Love People Not Pixels as a place to inspire a culture shift where individuals, families and communities make informed choices to reject pornography and defend one another from sexual exploitation.
